Here's our brass section at work. Our first
record was released on Atlantic's ATCO label.
Bob, Randall, Rob, and Steve Dahl.
On our first summer tour we played a lot of
armories. Probably the worst acoustics, but a
good place for indoor football when we had an
afternoon off. Here we are on an Army Reserve
tank. Our first road manager, shown on left,
was Chris Schnell. Then Steve, Jack, Leo,
Butch, Doug and John.
Our early recording sessions were done at
Audio House, in Lawrence Kansas. Here's
Butch, Jerry and Don working on some vocals.
KOMA radio broadcast our ads from Oklahoma
to the Canadian border. Here's Steve, Butch,
Black Was In!
The Famous Red Dog Inn
Here we are at our home, the Red Dog Inn
in Lawrence, Kansas, also home of the
University of Kansas. The Red Dog Inn
was a fantastic party place which drew
large college-age crowds. It was unique to
any other venue we played.
A great live shot of Steve and Butch with
Steve's Marshall amps in background.
Then, both were playing Gibson guitars.
The boys got into their soul singing. Steve
Dahl, Mike, plus some unidentified
ladies. Probably in Bartlesville, OK.

The Country Stampede, Manhattan,
KS, June, 2006.
The band was thrilled with playing at the Country
Stampede. A huge stage and sound system,
terrific audience with the Governor introducing us,
made for an awesome experience. Steve Dahl is
on the Big Screen, and, upper right, Steve Elliott
and Doug are with Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of
the State of Kansas.
Back are Terry, Chris,
